  1. Good friends Here I bring you one of my first dioramas that I made several years ago. The main model is the F-16C Fighter Fighting Falcon which is being reviewed by operators. The whole set is made to 1/48 scale of the Hasegawa brand. To make this representation I wanted to include a set of missiles and another of track technicians. https://youtu.be/i0uWAmTss2c Greetings and I hope you like it
  2. There is HB model (actually chinese J- 11B, that almost the same) done as 968 IIAP CO mount in the middle of 90th of the past century. There are some add-ons: lovres and meshes set and nozzles from A.M.U.R. Reaver, Brassin Missiles and rails from Eduard. I corrected the wheel wells shape and made new engine intakes. Some other minor improvements was made here and there. More photos here on Flickr!

  7. Hi all! I present to you my latest project, the 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E, "Red 08" in the unique Eggplant Dark Gray scheme of the Russian Air Force, circa 2014. This is really a great kit that has excellent fit almost everywhere, with the wing joins being the notable exception. The kit is not without other issues, however. The exhaust nozzles are molded in the straight position which would only be correct for a powered up machine, not drooped at rest. The stinger tail has flare boxes on the top, which is only correct for the prototypes and early production aircraft. Luckily for me, I wanted to do an early production Eggplant Gray aircraft so the stinger tail is correct OOB for my build. If one wants to do a current in-service aircraft, this would not be correct. Aftermarket used were the AMUR Reaver thrust vectoring nozzle to fix the droop issue, and Begemot Decals. The Begemot Decal sheet includes all the needed stencils for both the aircraft and weapons. The weapons are all OOB, and they are very nice, although I am no expert on the real ones, so I cannot comment on accuracy. But they look pretty accurate to me. I think this kit includes pretty much every Russian missile, bomb, and rocket pod currently in use. This will be a nice addition to my weapons bin ( The KH Fitter was the same way, so I am set with Russian Ordnance for a while!) I used copper wire for the static wicks, some thin scrap parts for the 4 straight probes near the nose cone, and a piece of scrap clear sprue to simulate the interior of the IRST. So, one of the things I really wanted to concentrate on this build was the metalwork. The real aircraft have an amazing array of colors from the heat-stressed titanium, and I am quite pleased with how that turned out. It does look a bit exaggerated in some pics, but in person the look is about perfect. The AMUR Nozzles are quite nice and are easy to remove from casting blocks, clean up, paint, and assemble. Very happy with these. I really enjoyed building this kit, and recommend it to everyone. I know the GWH Su-35 is coming, and I will be getting that one as well to do a blue camo in-service jet. But for someone wanting to do the splinter camo prototype or an early batch Eggplant jet, I would say get this kit. Hope you enjoy!

  11. While waiting for some parts for the Sukhoi and to take some pauses from it too, I decided to tackle a fast, straight forward build. I've been wanting to build this jet since I really love colorful schemes and with this one I'm pretty much served! I think most of you know the kit itself so on to the pics The box art The decals Hasegawa gives you the option to paint the red parts or use the whole decal, so you can actually build two models out of this sheet, I went for painting the red parts The build, as I said, is straight forward I wanted to have a close canopy with pilots inside to give figures a try! I really suck at it! Hope you like it

  16. 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E WIP

    Hi all! So I have been working on the new Kitty Hawk Su-35S and thought I would share my build experience here since I have not seen any others being built elsewhere. I know the GWH Su-35 is coming, but this really looks like a nice kit, and is correct for the version I want to build. I will be getting a GWH Su-35 though, it looks really awesome too, and build a Syrian service jet some day. I plan on doing the Eggplant first production batch, so this kit is correct with the stinger configuration. I am also using the A.M.U.R. Reaver exhaust nozzles, which are fantastic. Also will be using Begemot Decals. So here we go!
  17. kit is new sealed, comes with Eduards p/e set #49222 asking $40 + shipping shipping from 30121 weighs 1 lb 2 oz
  18. Title says it all. Just need the NH ANG markings from Collect Aire kit #4846 decal sheet if you have built it as another version. PM me with price and shipping info. R/ Dutch
  19. Hi all! I present to you my latest project, the 1/48 Great Wall Hobby MiG-29SMT Fulcrum-E, "Red 23" in the fantastic splinter camo of the Russian Air Force, circa 2010. This is indeed a beautiful kit that goes together very nicely, with relatively few fit issues. One such issue, according to builds I had seen during research, are the intakes. But I kinda cheated... 1. I Did not install the full engines and 2. I modeled the FOD doors in the down position. By doing this and removing all of the locator pins on the rear trunking I was able to get the fit to be nearly perfect. Aftermarket used were a Quickboost seat and Master pitot. The pitot gave me some trouble, as it didn't really fit the GWH nose. So I did a hybrid with the kit plastic and master metal. I have actually already broken it once now, and looking at the pics it seems I did not get it perfectly centered on the plastic part. So I will need to fix that. I didn't even notice it in person, looks ok from any reasonable distance... but photographs tend to magnify things! Decals are OOB, and they are actually quite good. No issues there whatsoever. So, looking at pics I have seen the SMTs in states anywhere from pristine to absolutely filthy. I wanted to model mine somewhere in the middle. But it did kinda get away from me (LOL), and is a bit more heavily weathered that I originally set out to do. Oh well, that seems to be something I have to fight often. Enough chatter, on to the pics. Hope you enjoy! Kit: 1/48 Great Wall Hobby MiG-29SMT Fulcrum-E 9-19 Decals: OOB Aftermarket: Master Model Pitot, Quickboost Seat Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), Gunze Aqueous H333 Extra Dark Sea Gray, H75 Dark Sea Gray, and FS 36320 Dark Ghost Gray , Mr Paint MRP-189 Traffic Gray, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Yellow, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Hot Metal Violet, Hot Metal Blue, Airframe Aluminum, and Burnt Iron.

  21. Hi all! Here is my latest completed project, the Hasegawa F-14A Tomcat in NSAWC "Flanker" adversary scheme, NAS Fallon 1999. As you know, this is the notorious Hasegawa Tomcat. This is my second one, and I learned quite a bit from my first try. I deviated from the directions in three key places: 1. Intake Assembly 2. Fuselage Join 3. Beaver Tail Attachment Basically what I did was to install the intake trunking BEFORE putting the inner ducting in. This allowed me to get a fantastic join of the intake trunking, which gave me fits last time. For the fuselage join, I cut out the rear bulkhead of the forward fuselage, and attached the completed forward fuselage to only the upper portion of the rear fusleage pancake. Also gave me a much better fit than last time. Third, attach the upper portion of the beaver tail to the upper portion of the fuselage pancake, and attach the lower beaver tail to the lower fuselage pancake. This was a HUGE improvement from the last time. The fit was almost perfect doing it this way. I used quite a mix of paints on this. Both grays are Gunze Aqueous, the light blue and white are Mr Paint, and the dark blue is Model Master. I am a bit disappointed as I used too light of a light blue, but I think it still looks pretty cool. Just a bit too light. :-) Decals are Fightertown Decals, and they are really fantastic. The fact that this aircraft is devoid of almost all stencils was a nice plus. LOL Other aftermarket additions are the Verlinden Cockpit Set, Steel Beach Naca Vent, and Master Pitot, and the Hasegawa Weapons Sets C and D for the probe and sidewinder. Anyway, I hope you like!

  22. SPITFIRE MK XII - SUSSEX, ENGLAND 1943 (AIRFIX 1/48) Spitfire MK XII - Airfix 1/48 For the first time in more than 25 years I've built an 1/48th scale model. This was a Kris-Kringle present and I decided to build it despite not being my preferred scale. So here we go! This new tooling Airfix kit is really very nicely done, excellent details and fine and crisp engraved panel lines. Also the fit is just perfect and I haven't use putty at all. The decals has two options and I decided to do one flown by South Australian RAAF Flight Lieutnant Donald Smith. Don Smith was the Squadron Leader and it was his personal aircraft. References: The model: Until next time! Cheers

  24. Hi all, back again! I just wanted to share my latest completed project, the much maligned Kitty Hawk Su-17/22 Fitter. The boxing is for Su-17M3/M4, but as I understand it, the Su-22M4 is externally identical to the Su-17M4 so that a 22M4 can be built from this box. So I chose to build the new Polish Air Force gray camouflage scheme Su-22M4 Fitter-K. I am sure by now you have heard much about this kit. But this is what I can tell you, from my experience... The engineering leaves one to scratch their head often. Lots of sprue gates in poor locations, 6 piece fuselage, and of course the intake and the shock cone. An aftermarket shock cone is an absolute must. I used a HAD Models one, and it is really nice! I highly recommend it. The lower fuselage has an odd banana shape that is not quite right... But that doesn't really bother me as I loaded it up and added the KKR-1T pod underneath. The instructions are ok, but not fantastic. There are some parts numbering errors to watch out for, although I can't remember them exactly. On the positive side, the detail is just fantastic. The cockpit detail is one of the best OOB ones I have ever seen. The fit of parts is actually mostly quite good. The wings are really well done, near Tamiya-like engineering and fit there. And here is the kicker, for me... I did actually enjoy building this. Now, granted, I built the Revell Tornado just before this, and that thing is a monster to build. This was a walk in the park compared to that. So I may have been a bit influenced by my previous build. I used ModelMaker decals for this, as they are the only ones available for this scheme. Actually, I only used the numbers from ModelMaker. The Polish insignias did not have crisp edges, so I sourced those from a Techmod MiG-29 sheet. Also, the ModelMaker decals came with no stencils. The stencils for this scheme are different colors than the old scheme, so I did not have those. So I had to just find Russian/Polish stencils from kits and decals in my stash and use ones that looked to be the right color and shape and place them according to what I saw in pics. That made the stenciling of this a major pain in the butt. And I hate stenciling period. LOL There are some very good pics online of this scheme, and they all seem to be kept quite clean. So I kept my weathering to a minimum here, unlike my previous few builds. Anyway, enough jibber jabber, I hope you enjoy! Kit: 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-17M3/M4 Decals: ModelMaker Polish Fitters, Polish Insignias from Techmod, and random stencils from many Russian/Polish subject kits Aftermarket: HAD Models Shock Cone, Master Model Pitot Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), Gunze Aqueous FS 36375 Light Ghost Gray, and Dark SeaGray, Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Green, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Hot Metal Violet, Hot Metal Blue, Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, and Burnt Iron.

  25. Hi everyone! I just complete my 23rd model, the 1/48 Revell Panavia Tornado IDS in Luftwaffe JaboG 31 markings from Afghanistan deployment at Mazer-e-Sharif in 2009. Let me just start by saying this is not an easy kit to build, particularly the wings and intakes. This ranks up there with the Hasegawa Tomcat as the most challenging builds I have encountered to far. In addition to the tricky wings and intakes, the instructions are really not good at all. Even worse, however, is the nonsensical parts numbering and part placement among the sprues. The parts are just spread all over, with a sprue containing parts in the 20s maybe and other in the 40s 50s 60s 70s up to the 100s. The sprues are all lettered, but the instructions never call out a letter, only the number. So much time is wasted hunting down parts by the number and appearance only. And since the numbers have no organization on the sprues, you literally hunt by appearance then check to see if it is the right number. Maddening! But with all of that said, it really does build into a nice model. The detail is quite good, despite the fact they added an extra panel line at the nose before the nosecone or something. It's just not quite right there. I am very happy with how this turned out despite some flaws and alignment issues that have only become apparent after looking at the pics. I used the Wingman Models Luftwaffe Tornados Part 1 sheet for this, and I must say they are quite awesome. No issues at all and they performed flawless. There was a little bit of an issue with the stencil diagram with incorrect numbering, but nothing that was not able to be figured out with some thought and deduction. I recommend this to anyone looking to do a German Tornado!

Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash. I am aware that some of the pics are kinda blurry. But I hope you enjoy!
